Metro Diaries – Book Review

Book Cover

Title – Metro Diaries

Author – Namrata

Publisher – Revelation House

My rating – ***** (5 stars)

What is love? This question has come to me several times, from within. I have been searching for the answer everywhere, finding different answers every time. Some answers come from my relationships with my family and friends, some come from observations of life around me. And some come from texts. Texts from books I read, from documentaries I watch, from movies I see.

The book is a selection of twenty of the most heart warming real stories which the author has come across. As the author puts it, ”Love stories aren’t created; they are captured.” I am a very romantic reader, and the stories in the book touched the right chords. As a reader, I could identify with the characters, and feel the stories unfurl. The stories are not easily predictable, but this genre is all about kindness understanding, respect, sacrifice, and unconditional devotion towards your partner.

The book is a journal of emotions, a world of hearts in sometimes simple and sometimes not so simple love. The author is a magician with words and expressing the inner thoughts and feelings of the people in love. There are some beautiful thoughts in the form of short poems that precede every story. Here’s an example:

I see you peeping through the clouds, alluring me to look at you;
I turn around only to find you nowhere in sight.

I prance here and there in search of you and find you laughing at my folly.
You take me in your arms and look into my eyes; in that moment I lived a thousand lives.
I feel your warmth all around me as your rays color my world in various hues.
I bask in your light and love, which tells me I am special.
You stretch your arms to ask me and
I nod my head to say I do.

I rate the book 5 stars, with recommendations for all readers who love reading romance.
